    ACRL/NY First Year Experience
    Discussion Group Meeting

    Spring 2018

    Fri May 18, 2018, 9:30am-10:45am

    Jump Start A Personal Librarian Program
    at Your College!

    Many Personal Librarian Programs are designed to help First Year Students succeed as they enter college. “Personal Librarians” are the points of contact with incoming students and they can help students navigate their way in their first year. They may help them find textbooks, cite their sources, and help them conduct the research for their first college paper.

    Most importantly, they support student success by connecting them to library services and resources that enhance their information literacy and critical thinking skills. Join us on Friday, May 18​th  for an engaging discussion on how to develop a Personal Librarian program at your college, the planning, implementation, and its evaluation. The co-chairs will also bring several articles that give case studies of successful Personal Librarian programs at other colleges.

    We look forward to an engaging discussion!


    When: Friday May 18, 2018
    Time: 9:30am – 10:45am
    Where: Mercy College, Manhattan Campus
    66 W 35th St, New York, NY 10016
    Room number: 723

    Light refreshments will be served!
